ABOUT THE FILM:
(The Philippines, 2016, 228 minutes)
Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz’s epic story of revenge deferred functions as a tale of urban theater and class warfare. After 30 years in prison, a woman discovers that her friend and fellow inmate committed the murder of which she was accused. This leads to her release and subsequent discovery of the man who framed her. Inspired by Tolstoy, The Woman Who Left is a sensitive expression of family and forgiveness.

«The film makes uncompromising demands on your attention and your empathy. But it is also illuminating and, in its downbeat, deliberate way, exhilarating.»—A.O. Scott, The New York Times

«The film is a story of solidarity and redemption, and its main strength is a panoramic vision of the Philippines' socioeconomic woes.»—Ela Bittencourt, The Village Voice

«The Woman Who Left may not be a movie for everyone, but if you allow yourself to settle into its leisurely tempo and marinate in its heroine's journey, it can be a richly rewarding experience.»—Entertainment Weekly

ABOUT THE MASTERS OF LONG-FORM CINEMA SERIES:

Each film will screen twice, with weekend matinee and weekday evening options.
